The Amnesia Pavilions
Nicolas Muellner, The Amnesia Pavilions (A-Jump Books, 2011)
The Amnesia Pavilions documents Nicolas Muellner’s return to Ulan-Ude, a small city in Siberia, after a 17-year absence. Guided by notes and photos taken during his first trip to the city years ago, the author seeks to understand his own past while searching for a close friend who has disappeared. Time magazine included the book in its list of the best photobooks of the year.
Muellner is an artist, writer, and curator who teaches photography and critical studies at the Roy H. Park School of Communications.
